Children

During Sunday School, children will be nurtured in the Word and love of Jesus Christ through story, song, prayer, and activities. Over the course of the year, they will hear the whole story of salvation from Creation to the Cross and beyond. They will also learn some essential elements of our Episcopal liturgy.

3K/4K: Room 127, Parish House.

5K/1st Grade: Room 211, Parish House
2nd/3rd Grade: Room 215, Parish House
4th/5th Grade: Room 217, Parish House

During the 10:30 AM Worship Services:

Nursery Care for 3K/4K in Room 112, Parish House. Upon request, teachers will take children from Sunday School to the nursery for the duration of the service.

Children's Church Children’s Church occurs in St Luke’s Chapel during the 10:30 am church service. It provides a reverent liturgy that has all the elements of Rite II, but in a simplified format geared toward ages 3k - 3rd grade. As they participate, they will begin to appreciate the rhythms of the worship service so it will feel familiar when they are old enough to stay with their parents.

All middle schoolers are welcome to join us as we dive into strange stories from the Bible, and focus on some of the stranger accounts of the Old and New Testament. We will focus on these two questions: What does this story tell me about our understanding of God and Jesus and how does this story relate to our everyday lives? We will explore the stories of:

  • Simon Peter walking on water
  • Jacob ascending into heaven
  • Shadrach Mesach and Abednego in the furnace
  • Accounts from the Book of Revelation
  • The arrival of angels (and why people seem so scared of them)

Young Adults, Middle Adults, & Senior Adults

Parents' Sunday School
McCall Parlor, Parish House

We are all busy. It may seem like we have no choice but to live at a frantic pace, but God has a better path for us. Join us this semester as we discuss John Mark Comer’s The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry as he addresses one of the greatest threats to our spiritual lives: hurry. Instead, Jesus offers us a new rhythm of life, overflowing with grace, peace, and beauty. Each morning will include fellowship, video sessions and discussion led by class facilitators.

Rector’s Forum
McKissick Refectory, Parish House
Do the values of American culture stack up against the values of our Christ Church family? What “values” still hold up in the 21st century America in which we live today? Join our Rector this fall as we take a deeper look at what Jesus and the Bible specifically say about the values of “Community”, “Compassion”, “Faithful”, “Grateful”, and “Inviting to All.” You don’t want to miss this important look as we discover who we really are and who we aspire to be.

Together we will attempt to find meaning and purpose in God's Word.
